Water going to ice maker


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

What you think is probably correct. Water valves can seep water and freeze the fill tube. Remove the ice maker and the fill tube remove ice from the fill tube and replace the water valve.

Auto Ice maker in Whirlpool fridge, not producing ice. I suspect the water feed line might be frozen since it was working fine two days ago. I haven't heard the water fill and the tray is empty.

Not making ice


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

Water leaks from ice maker in ice tray.


When the ice maker calls for water it'll be filling for about 7 seconds if is more the ice maker inside control board is bad , but if there's water in the ice maker all the timeeven after or before it calls for water it means that the water valve (solenoid) that supplies water to the ice maker is leaking and you have to replace it.

Ice Maker


The water valve appears to be the problem. The water valve ,located on rear of ref. at bottom has two (2) sides to it. One side feeds the water to the water dispensor and the other side feeds the ice maker..

Ice Maker problem


There is a water valve that "feeds" the ice maker. When the Ice maker makes ice it sends a signal to the water valve, it opens for approx. 7 seconds and fills ice tray with water. Another cause of no water in IM could be frozen water line where it feeds the IM.

The ice maker is time filled, it only has a certain time in which to fill. There is no way to adjust the water level. Check the pressure limiting valve which is in the water line before the filter. Have you replaced the filter? Remove the filter and pressure limiting valve and see if the ice maker receives more water. If it does, then replace the filter and check again. If it is still good, the pressure limiting valve is faulty.
